A $1 million prize is up for grabs every day at the Tropicana in Atlantic City from now through early October.
The game is called simply the Winning Ticket game and it gives players a chance to win a seven-figure jackpot every day through Oct. 5. But on Oct. 6, a guaranteed $1 million will go to one player.
To play the game, a casino customer has to belong to the Tropicana’s Diamond Club player’s program. And that’s free. Also, you don’t even have to gamble at all to get at least one entry into the daily drawing.
How to get in the game
During the promotion period, new and existing Diamond Club members will receive one free ticket for the Winning Ticket Game through any comp machine in the casino. Players can choose their own lucky numbers or select a quick pick option that will randomly assign six numbers.
However, club members can receive additional Winning Ticket entries by earning two Diamond Club Points per day. Plus, the casino advises customers to look for Bonus Entry Days throughout the promotion when Diamond Club members can earn multiple Winning Ticket entries to increase their chances of winning big.
How the game is played
The casino explains that a Zoom Ball machine will conduct five drawings daily at 1 p.m., 3 p.m., 5 p.m., 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. in Palm Walk. On Fridays and Saturdays, an extra drawing will be held at 11 p.m.
The results of these drawings will be televised throughout the resort. If a member’s ticket has three or more matching numbers with those drawn, that member is awarded a prize for $25 to $1,000 in Free Slot Play. If all six numbers match, $1 million is awarded (split among the winners if there is more than one.)
The grand finale
All prize winners should keep their Winning Tickets, because they are the players’ entries into the guaranteed $1 million prize drawing on Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012.
From this pool of entries, 10 winners will be called to play in the Winning Ticket finale in Palm Walk. A large game board will hold 10 envelopes. All 10 winners will select a prize envelope — nine contain vouchers for $1,000 cash prizes but one will hold a voucher for the grand prize of $1,000,000.
